The Hottest Year on Record: 12th month in a row of unprecedented heat

Cenk Uygur | (The Young Turks) | – –

“The planet keeps getting warmer. The level of destruction from natural disasters is also climbing. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down.. .

“For the 12th month in a row, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has announced record-high global temperatures — marking a yearlong heat streak that scientists say is grim sign of climate change in action.

April 2016 was the hottest April ever recorded by NOAA since it started tracking global temperatures in 1880, the agency announced Wednesday. This is the 12th consecutive month the agency has identified a monthly global temperature record. That’s the longest such streak NOAA has ever recorded.

“The April temperature across global land and ocean surfaces was 1.98°F above the 20th century average of 56.7°F,” NOAA announced. “This was the highest for April in the 1880-2016 record, surpassing the previous record set in 2010 by 0.50°F.”

  2. Since we can’t convince our fellow humans to avoid a mass die off (of homo sapiens and perhaps as much as 90% of the current flora/fauna on the planet), maybe we should focus on creating ways to archive the best of human achievement so that any surviving humans don’t have to start all over again at caveman level…

    • John – the planet is coming out of an Ice Age but 3 million years is not “mini.” Historic misapplication of solar cycles like the”Maunder Minimum, the Spörer Minimum” and other morphed into junk-science terms is purposely misleading.

      Human-induced climate collapse has altered millions of years of climatic history in a century of two.

      The most troubling aspect of climate collapse is the human effect is accelerating.

  4. John, if it’s in your town, and it’s a one off, then it’s weather. If it global, then it’s climate. YOu can have weather that is not in conformity with climate change, but the overall global pattern is what matters. If you have a history of earth citation to show, please do. I’m willing to see from where you get your ideas.
